My humble journey
Christie the creator.
As a young girl, you would often find me tinkering with old cars in my dad's shed or running barefoot around our hills property. I wasn't exactly the girly-girl type. But as I entered my teenage years, I felt a pull towards the beauty industry. My mother suggested I pursue a diploma in beauty therapy, and I found that I was completely enamored with it. At the age of 19, I took a leap and purchased a boutique beauty salon in the hills of Perth. Working tirelessly to build my business, I pushed myself to the limit.
But after several years of running the salon, my mental and physical health began to suffer, and I developed a skin condition called psoriasis. I knew I needed to take a break and focus on myself. So I sold the salon and began a more slow paced lifestyle working from home.
In 2018, my dad was diagnosed with cancer, and I felt helpless as he began his treatment. His skin became itchy and sore as a side effect of the treatments, That's when I discovered the power of holistic remedies, like essential oils and botanicals. I started creating a body oil and bath soak to soothe his skin.
Although I still loved providing beauty services, my dream had always been to create my own natural skincare range. After years of putting it off, I finally took the leap and started my own brand. My mission is to create products that bring people together, filled with natural, vegan-friendly ingredients. I want to change an industry that's overflowing with plastic-covered, chemical-filled skincare, and educate people on eco-friendly and sustainable alternatives.
This brand has grown as I have, from maiden to mother through our IVF journey to holidays overseas showing us there needs to be a change in the industry with single use plastics.
Through it all, I've learned the importance of self-care and taking care of my family. My journey has led me to a more gentle, soft, and feminine approach to life, one that's focused on holistic wellness and family-oriented living.
